romney talked about -- also in new york today, mitt romney spoke at the clinton global initiative. congress, the model for me was a program based in boston called city year, which a lot of you know about. it is a great program. when i left the white house there was discussion about whether americorps would be defunded, the largest affiliate in the united states was city year, and mitt romney was on the board. i wrote him a letter saying we should continue this. i called him and i was out of the white house and i said, governor, i love city year. that is what americorps is all about. i hope you will save it. he urged the republican congress to continue to support city year, and they did. i just visited the program in south africa where the youth unemployment rate exceeds 40%, and 80% of the volunteers in johannesburg have a job the day they leave city year. it turns out it is good economics and good for the society. all of you should know that, and, governor, i thank you for being here. the podium is yours. [applause] >> thank you, mr. president. i appreciate your kind words, and t

are being set on two different levels. you have the obama and romney campaigns talking about how great the other guy is. the people in the obama camp cannot stop praising mitt romney. they do not like him in any other way. they think he is a brilliant debater. same on romney's side. they talk about how obama is a debate champion. and how he has set the standard. what they are trying to do is lower expectations for their own performance and talk about their own flaws a bit and raise expectations for the other guy hoping that we will judge the debate itself with that in mind. there is another set of expectations. how important are these debates? you have the romney campaign in a position where they need a game-changing moment. then you have the obama campaign saying this is just another moment for us to have another conversation with the american people. that is a downplaying of the expectations. for the debate itself. >> you have been reporting about the separation is taking place for months, most notably when mitt romney was down during the democratic convention. and preparing fo

the things both campaigns talk about is this is a possible advantage for governor romney bbecause there s an elevated factor for him. he is on the same stage as the government -- as the president. these debates to make an impression. sometimes they have a lasting impression. often, they do not. it is an opportunity, one of the few moments in the campaign, the conventions are another, but this is the last opportunity that both candidates have to speak such -- to such a large audience at once. >> laura meckler, thank you for being with us. we have warren decker. joining us from boston, a professor alan schroeder. he has 50 -- 50 years of high risk tv. what makes a good debate and a good debater? >> i think the difference between a really good debate from my standpoint, intercollegiate debate, and debates we see at the presidential level is that a really good debate would be characterized by some depth of clash and arguments back and forth between the two. a lot of that is missing from presidential debate. the testing of ideas comes from that clash. without that clash, i think the de

young kids. there was a comment made by mitt romney on nbc this week. let's get serious about talking rock family paid leave policy. but it really serious about what early learning environments can do to help parents. so they do not feel like it will not be available to them. those of the three pieces i wanted to put out there. i think we're missing a big opportunity to connect early chaka dedication with the big issues affecting our country, with education innovation issues. i'm curious to see in the next couple months of vacant store the pot the bit and get more of the conversation going on this. >> thank you so much. we turned towards our audience. i may start by saying if there is any immediate response or quantum among the panel that you want to jump in on. maybe we should go down and the militant right now . but we have a little bit of time. we will go wrong with the microphone. ask a single brief question so we have a time for folks to respond. >> i agree with everything that was just said. i do agree and which we had settled on quality and investment 20 years ago when we had a

. a lot of people said why is mitt romney talking about debt and deficits? this is just an issue that resonates almost as a psychic. that is one thing to keep it until my. you have the strands that do not always clear in a way that works for you. that is wanting to keep it into my. it is interesting to think about -- when you have this kind of stagnation for much of the country, what does it mean? one thing is if you look at the snap and moment -- in a moment, it is increased dramatically since 2000. same thing for medicaid. limbo clinton gave a speech at the dnc, he was true. -- when bill clinton gave his speech at the dnc, he was s hrewd. when you look at medicaid and who benefits, and it's a lot of white a working-class folks. when you think about how republicans need to talk about it, that the funny thing about mid ryan -- ryan and ryanism. he has until some respects gotten it right. you want to talk about how we care about the safety net. in matters of law to was. a debate dynamics decided, we need to have this. it is not some kind of side thing but an important part of maki

gingrich was talking about. >> another question -- recently, one of mitt romney's operatives made the statement to reporters when they were pushing him on the claim about welfare. we will keep running that, we will not have our campaign did but -- dictated by fact checkers. probably a lot of news people were shocked by the cynicism they heard coming out of his mouth. jim, you have been around the longest -- did this surprise you? >> i really cannot say that i was. they had kind of behave that way all along. they were certainly not terribly worried enough to change the rhetoric when something is pointed out to them. >> you mean the romney campaign? >> yes. i do not see a lot of evidence of trimming statements back to make a more accurate when they are repeated -- >> i do not know about that. this is -- my take on this, in the context of that question and answer, they were saying that this is the most effective ad. they said, that got four pinocchios. the response was, we are not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers. what he means by that, politicians in both parties w
